Investigators have released a sketch of a man they say is connected to an explosion outside a building that includes the offices of the Colorado Springs chapter of the NAACP.
The man is described as white, around 40 years old, and balding. Investigators say he was in the area at the time of the bombing and appeared to have carried something down an alley and returned to his truck empty handed.
Special Agent Thomas Ravenelle heads the FBI Denver field office and says they’re still not speculating on motive.
"But," Ravenelle says, "we would be naïve if we did not acknowledge the NAACP as a national organization has been the recipient of threats throughout their existence."
Investigators are also offering a $10,000 reward for information leading to an arrest and conviction. The incident occurred Tuesday. No one was hurt.
Anyone with information is asked to call the FBI Denver tip line: 303-435-7787.
